The Karigar Foundation is funded entirely by generous individual and corporate sponsors.
As a non-profit organisation, all of the operating costs of each regional team and the course scholarships for the candidates to attend the day release training programme are covered by these donations.
There is no limit on the number of centres that can be sponsored, and because we recognise that there will be a personal connection to a specific region or craft, we offer all sponsors the option to choose the craft or region that they wish to support.
We ensure that all sponsors receive regular updates on the performance of their chosen centres via newsletters or webinars, and can join with us in celebrating the success of the students they have helped when they graduate after 12 months.
The Karigar Foundation provides a national programme and we seek to equalise opportunities geographically, and across a variety of crafts. In keeping with our equality agenda we are committed to inclusivity and do not accept any bias with regards to gender, age, sexual orientation, social class, religious beliefs, or ethnicity.
By sponsoring our centres you are giving others a helping hand to have better lives and opportunities. That’s great legacy to leave.
